    Austin Auction Gallery Presents Diamond Jewelry and Assorted Fine Art in Year-End Sale

    Austin Auction Gallery concludes the year with a two-session sale featuring an extensive collection of fine art, jewelry, and antiques, as well as French and Italian pieces. Leading the first session is an oil on canvas painting by Jerry Jordan, titled Bluebonnets. An oil painter from Taos, New Mexico, Jerry Jordan’s works include still lifes, cityscapes, and countryside paintings in a range of styles, including Impressionism and abstraction. Richness and vibrancy dominate his paintings, capturing not only Taos' picturesque landscape and the lives of the Pueblos but also a sense of its history and culture. The elements of his compositions are often characterized by subtle relationships. Texas artist Arnold Vail’s Bluebonnet Landscape is another notable work in the catalog. An oil on canvas framed work by the artist, the painting depicts an old ranch house with bluebonnets and Texas paintbrush bordering a creek and dirt road. Among the top lots in the second session of this event is a fine estate 18-karat yellow gold, emerald, and diamond ring.

    19th-Century Navajo Rug and Art Deco Leather Furniture Highlight Austin Auction Gallery’s Upcoming Sale

    During the late 19th century, the demand for Navajo rugs rose due to the migration of settlers. As the trade took off in a major way, Anglo merchants urged weavers to incorporate Yei figures in their designs. Despite the traditional belief of “risking the wrath of the gods,” the imagery gained popularity as it fetched good prices. A large Native American handspun wool Yei rug from circa 1920 is a key highlight of the upcoming auction from Austin Auction Gallery. The design depicts Yei figures, the spirit deities of the Navajo people. Although Yei rugs were initially woven for use on the floor, they were also used as wall hangings and adornment for furniture. Two Italian Art Deco leather pieces by Casa Moderna are furniture lots of interest in this sale. One is a sideboard, and the other is a bar cabinet. Both are styled with embossed leather front and pictorial carved sides with the bodies rising on stretcher-joined bridge feet. Another Art Deco-style furniture piece is a pair of French leather club chairs. The 20th-century armchairs feature rounded back and removable seat cushions with block legs.

    Austin Auction Gallery to Present Mosler Safe Company Bank Vault Door in July 3-Day Sale

    Several bank vault doors will be featured in Austin Auction Gallery’s upcoming three-day sale. Particularly highlighted is a Mosler Safe & Lock Company bank vault door that has been mounted on a freestanding metal stand and measures approximately 103.5 inches high and 99.25 inches wide.  Originally founded as Mosler, Bahmann & Company by Gustave Mosler and Fred Bahmann in 1867, a dispute with Bahmann following the death of Mosler in 1874 caused the Mosler family to split from the American-based security equipment manufacturer and form Mosler Safe & Lock Company. The family retained ownership until it sold the company to American Standard Companies in 1967. In 1986, American Standard sold the division back to a group of Mosler managers and outside investors. Then, in 2001, after continued debt problems caused the company to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Diebold acquired ownership. Mosler’s most famous vaults include the pre-WWII Mitsui Bank vaults that survived Hiroshima’s nuclear attacks, the vault that previously held the United States Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and the United States Bullion Depository’s gold vaults found at Fort Knox.  Also included in this auction is a 35-inch Civil War era German Solingen calvary sword with W. Clauberg’s makers mark, a rare 1844 Republic of Texas map by W.H. Emory, and more. Visit Bidsquare to view the entire catalog and browse more online auctions.
